A Pleasant and Awesome Surprise!

You know how sometimes you get aggravated with your husband, yet you still love him? And then he does something that totally blows you out of the water, and makes you feel like the most special person in the world? Well, that happened to me today. While talking to my sister this morning, Ken came in from the post office and said the book he wanted me to read had arrived. He then handed me this booklet. I asked what it was, and he handed me a box saying it "went with this". I opened it and started to shake! This was what was in it!!!!!!!
I couldn't believe it! A brand new Lumix, with lenses. Then he gave me another box, and that had the zoom lense in it! I can't believe it!! Really! I have a lot to learn with this, Ken is helping me right now, but here are some pics I took, and as you can see I have a long ways to go! But will have plenty of time to perfect before our trip west.

I love this picture of Chip though, the clover is popping right out of the picture!

I think Ken really does nice things for you.......sometimes! How nice of him. You're going to have such fun with that, and it's nice that he's going to help you. What a cutie Chip is and you're right - the clover really pops. Diane
